The mountain view was not really a view as it was a small side window. The heating wasn't working when we were there however when we told them they looked into it and gave us a heater. It seemed to be a wider problem and they did get people in to fix it. The service was great, staff very friendly and very kind to our dog.

Great location - not up to the price tag
We made a last-minute booking for this hotel after our first choice was closed because of Covid-19. Beautiful setting; obviously dog-friendly (a LOT of dogs there); pleasant atmosphere - but pricey for this type of hotel. The food was somewhat disappointing. Breakfast was very basic (only limited choice of over-sweet cereals; no jam/marmalade; etc.) - although the salmon & scrambled egg was good. We ate in the restaurant on both evenings. On one, we ordered Chicken Kiev with pomme anna. The chicken had a negligible amount of filling and the pomme anna was tiny. On the second evening, we splashed out on steaks - but the 'medium' was 'rare'. Overall, not really value for money.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We took a short stay during these unusual times for our wedding anniversary. The hotel took the wearing of masks, social distancing and sanitising very seriously. The room was no 28 and had lovely views over the grounds on two aspects as it was a corner room. Room very bright and comfortable and very clean. As expected there was no room service but one could ask for replacements if required. Staff were lovely, helpful and caring. For those who love to take their dogs the hotel provided for these also.
